    Why is my cat obsessed with my water glass?

    Not an earth-shattering question, but I've never really had a cat before--always dogs, and this behavior confuses, amuses and exasperates me.  She has two of her own water sources in the house but if she sees me with a glass of water she stalks me until she finds an opportunity to take a drink.  And it's water only, by the way.  If anything else is in the glass, she somehow knows and completely ignores it.

    I'm not sure of the "regulation" reasons, but I have had cats for many years and they always chose something that they want to have of yours and they stalk you for it continuously.  I chalked it up to they want to be closer to me and so they "share" something with me.  Sorta like outside cats that leave dead mice or snakes at your door as a gift.  I had one cat that would follow me in the morning until she could stick her paw in my coffee and lick it clean.  Needless to say, she got to finish the coffee and I made another one.
